Inktober 2018 Part 1

Inktober is an art challenge that takes place during October with ink as the main medium. There is a list of daily prompts which helps you decide what to draw each day. I had a lot of fun with Inktober this year and will be using a lot of the designs for society 6 and redbubble. I may even sell a few original Ink works on etsy. I had a few stressful moments as I took part Inktober and 365 Days of Paint at the same time, doubling the amount of work I was used to doing. I went home to Ireland for a week during October  and couldn’t paint every day because I was catching up with family and friends. So they weren’t all done daily, most of them were done days after the deadline.

The name of the prompts are under each painting. I will be posting the rest in a few days time.

Day 1 Poison
Day 2 Zen
Day 3 Roasted
Day 4 Spell
Day 5 Chicken
Day 6 Drooling
Day 7 Exhausted
Day 8 Star
Day 9 Precious
Day 10 Flowing

Inktober

Inktober was a challenge I took part in during October, I painted and drew using black ink for the most of it in one of my pocket sized watercolour sketchbooks. Great experience, ended up loving some of the results, although I really disliked a lot of the paintings. I also discovered a new style I can use while painting and shot up by about 100 followers on instagram during that month. Have a browse through my 31 paintings and drawings, let me know what you think. I am currently looking for a Christmas challenge to partake in, but if there’s none I really like then I might start my own challenge like “#25daysofchristmaspainting” or maybe something that is less of a mouth full. Leave a like, follow me and check out my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter by clicking one of the icons at the top of the page! Again I will be doing commissions coming up to Christmas so contact me if you are interested in buying someone a Christmas present.
